Staff were very friendly when we visited for dinner, and the place has a cool, grown-up vibe: a welcome contrast from some of the nearby beach bars. A carafe of the house red was very drinkable and we both enjoyed our food (fish stew and...More

We went to Koki's for dessert. Very cool decor. We ordered 2 desserts: a passion fruit creme brûlée and a chocolate mousse thing. Both were super sweet without much nuance. Also overpriced I thought.
